Burnham PPS Porky Pie Blooper

Still no apology from Debbie Abrahams following her Eoin Clarke-inspired question to the PM. Andy Burnham’s PPS claimed that Virgin Care was a donor to the Tory party and that it had shareholders on clinical commissioning group boards, allegations Clarke has had to issue a grovelling apology for. With Abrahams ignoring the subject on twitter and elsewhere, a co-conspirator got in touch last night to point Guido towards a tweet from two days ago:

Telling NHS porky pies even when presented with the facts? Talk about eating your words…

    I’m a lot less depressed than I was yesterday. It’s a pity I’ll have to stick a pencil up my nose from time to time over the next couple of years but it’s better than the Big House.

      I am glad you are feeling better today Margaret. I noticed the trial aged you considerably. But fortunately that trip to the pub, revitalised you immeasurably. Careful with the pencils though as damaging your only braincell could be harmful.

        Good luck Margaret, you are inspirational. If I ever get fingered, I will use the ‘Moran’ defence. Boaz.

    Abraham’s should apologize, and perhaps be fired.

    The sheer white knuckle ride that is blogging summed up in a sentence.

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
